Do you have a nice young calf that is out of one of your good cow families? Do you think she might turn out to be a good cow someday? Well the Sho-Me Holstein Futurity is for YOU!

The Missouri Holstein Futurity consists of a one-time entry fee of $25 when calves are nominated and the cattle will be shown as Three-Year Olds.

All of the money collected for entry fees is split between the cattle shown the final year on a percentage basis. All of the extra money raised each year from donors is divided equally among all the entrants that show in the futurity.

So, if you have some heifers that were born between September 1, 2016 and August 31, 2017 then click on the 2020 3-Yr-Old Futurity Form below. Entries will be due February 1, 2018. Print form and submit all entries and monies by FEBRUARY 1, 2018.
